Follow The Rules Or Follow Your Heart?

I was sitting with a coworker recapping her busy weekend. She just recently started hanging out with a new guy and so far things are going great. She’s happy, excited and just plain smitten. I haven’t seen her smile this much in months. She was sitting relaxed in her office chair, looking up with a

Don’t Put All Your Eggs In One Basket

It’s a saying we’ve all heard at one point or another, and it can relate to a variety of situations:

  • job prospects
  • personal life choices
  • relationships
  • you name it

I’ve followed that advice all my life. I plan everything I can and try to have at least one or two alternative plans just in case that first one doesn’t work.

Follow The Rules Or Follow Your Heart?

I was sitting with a coworker recapping her busy weekend. She just recently started hanging out with a new guy and so far things are going great. She’s happy, excited and just plain smitten. I haven’t seen her smile this much in months.

She was sitting relaxed in her office chair, looking up with a smile as she recounted each event with diligent accuracy to make sure she didn’t miss any detail. But she suddenly stopped and said, “It was a perfect weekend, and I’m really happy. But I did something bad. I broke the rules.”

Teach Our Daughters And Teach Our Sons

The Reality Behind Closed Doors

Have you ever envied another person’s romantic relationships? You looked at this seemingly-perfect couple and thought, “What I wouldn’t give to have a love like that.” They’re always smiling on Facebook and maybe affectionate in public. They’re planning their lives together and if they’re not married then they seem on the path toward wedded bliss.

I’ve seen those couples and known two of them quite well actually. You can imagine I was recently stunned when both pairs split.

Do something you want to do.

That’s what my therapist told me as I sat sobbing on her couch during one of our bi-weekly sessions.

It has been about eight months since I stopped going to see her and I can tell I’m so much stronger and healthier than I was then. But I still struggle with those words to this day.

I’ve lived almost my entire life trying to please others: my parents, my boyfriends my teachers, my bosses. I realized during therapy that I’d put myself pretty low on the totem pole of priorities. So being faced with the challenge of doing something I wanted was a little daunting.

To Travel Or Not To Travel

When do you take a vacation with your boyfriend or girlfriend?

Do you go when you’re still in the “getting to know someone” phase or should it be after you’ve known them and enjoy their company enough to stand them for a week straight of driving long distances or catching flights?

Hit The Reset Button

I tend to be the type who overbooks myself with work time, volunteer time, gym time, friend time, and family time. You name it and it’s probably on my schedule.

I like being busy. I keep on track and the moments just fly past me. But I’ve realized recently that sometimes you just need to recharge and go reset the body and the mind.

The other day I worked an 11-hour shift with no break and no lunch. I was exhausted by the end of it. I felt like I’d been literally beaten.
